Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star DVD Review



Synopsis: Bucky [Nick Swarsdon] is a small town grocery bagger, going nowhere in life until he discovers that his conservative parents were once adult film stars! Armed with the belief that he has found his destiny, Bucky packs up and heads out to LA, hoping to follow in his parents footsteps. Also starring Christina Ricci, Don Johnson and Stephen Dorff.

Review: Bucky Larson is an interesting film, because its almost immediately a parody of itself.  I don't know if they made this as a cheeky joke or if they really are so out of touch that they think this kind of cliche storytelling is what the public puts up with anymore.  I tend to think its a bit of a satire, and in the case the movie is genius.  Nick Swardson is a funny guy and he does a nice job of building the ackward and bizarre looking character of Bucky Larson and there are some laughs to pull out of this one, but beware!

The special features on this DVD include: Laughter Is Contagious, Behind The Teeth, Gary: Tough Customer and Bucky Sparkles.

Interest Range: Comedy
